Advice By Latinitas

As part of our Women’s History Month Blog-a-thon, we asked Latinitas to write their top words of wisdom. What advice would you like to share with younger girls?

“The best advice I can give young girls is to be your absolute self. Being who you are will help you find your true friends, give you opportunities, and the confidence you need to face anything and everything. AND you’ll be truly happy! Focus on yourself and your future. Prioritize because it will really benefit you in the long run. Above all just enjoy your life, don’t rush to grow up take it a step at a time and go with the flow!” – Ariana Ortega

“The advice I can give to younger girls is to always be yourself, because God made each and every one of us unique. Don’t pretend to be  someone else or try to be someone else. We have a lot to offer, and help others. We must always be kind and appreciate the people who love us and are there for us. I thank God simply for one more day to live and his great love for us. Be the best you can be, enjoy your youth years as much as possible. Don’t stress with school, take your time and be organized. We have to always believe in ourselves no matter the circumstances. God will always help us find a way through no matter what. Live life and enjoy it and cherish those who are always there when you need them, family and friends. I am so thankful to God for giving me the family that I have and my friends. I know we can all make a difference to help other teenagers like us to be confident and believe in themselves. I am also thankful to God because I have one more year of life today and because he is always there with us protecting us. Enjoy each day and be thankful to God in everything, and be glad because being a female is the best thing. We all have a lot of talents and a purpose in this life.” – Vanessa Ramirez

“You are always so hard on yourself! Stop comparing your outfits, body, and personality to other people. You need to learn to love yourself. Don’t try to make others take on the role of loving you before you learn to love you. Be confident! Aim to be the best version of you. If someone else finds your quirks annoying, they can sod off because you are unique and delightful. Secondly, be wary of sketchy friends. It’s great to be a friendly girl, but if said friends have proven to be untrustworthy, please get away from them. This is for your own good! Find kinder friends! They’re not that hard to find! They are there! They want your friendship! Thirdly, please put a greater effort in to your school work. Yeah, math might be hard but, it’s even harder to bring up your GPA and/or learn how to discipline yourself academically if you don’t put the time in. You can do it! Please don’t get lazy! I know it’s easier to watch TV and avoid your obligations, but you’re screwing future-you in the long term.” – Vianey Reyes

“Please, think about your future!! I want to tell you that it won’t be easy. Getting low grades at school is not going to help you. Having too much fun is not going to help you at school.Start getting involved in things that are going to benefit your formation at school. Find new friends that can be helpful for you. Pay attention and respect your teachers because you never know if you will need them. Take care of yourself, respect every one and most important respect your body. Remember that you are becoming a strong women with different types of interests and that you are amazing.” – Ariadne Venegas

“Remember that it’s okay to feel things. It’s the one thing I wish I knew when I was growing up. Even to this day, I forget that feeling emotions is okay. So try not to ever forget that. If you’re sad because of a loss in the family or sad because a member of your favorite boy band quit, it’s okay. You have every right to feel any and all emotions that you feel. Don’t ever let anyone else tell you otherwise. It’s best to ignore when anyone says girls are too “sensitive.” Be proud of your sensitive side. Being able to understand someone else’s feelings and accept that they feel that way is a great thing and something more people in the world need to start doing.  Anger, happiness, fear, nervousness, and anything else. They’re all okay. Just make sure that you feel them 100% because holding them back isn’t going to help you out in the long run. If you want to cry, cry. If you want to laugh, laugh. You feel a certain way for a reason, so let it out. Learning feeling emotions is okay and it’s something that I’ve found so hard to accept after so many years of thinking a different way. It’s the only thing I wish I could tell my younger self.” – Gissel Gonzalez

“I would tell younger girls to study and take advantages of every opportunity they have in life. Do not waste time doing things that will not make you feel proud of yourself all the time. Also, do not let other people tell you, you cannot do something you want. Be brave all the time and fight for your dreams. Always follow your heart and do whatever makes you happy. Love your family, friends and life all the time. No matter how you feel, you are worth a lot more than you think. Remember to enjoy every second of life and spread love.” -Eunice Sanchez

What Feminism Means to Me

During the Latinitas Women’s History Month Blog-a-thon, we asked Latinitas what they think about the topic of feminism. Feminism is defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as the  the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. These Latinitas shared their thoughts on what feminism means to them.

Feminism Means Equality
“Feminism to me, is a belief system where you are an advocate for gender equality. Feminism in my life has been played out through me wanting to be seen as “worthy” as men. I feel our society really devalues women and their voice. Being a feminist is wanting a better future, where your daughters and sons do not feel that they have to be forced into a role they are unhappy with just to meet society’s expectations. Feminism to me is wanting to live in a world where you are seen as who you are as a person rather than “just a woman” or a man that does not fit the stereotypical “strong man” role. I think that is important to remember that about half of the world’s people are women, and many of them go through horrendous things, simply because they are a woman. The same thing happens to men who do not meet the profile of a “strong man.” I think feminism is still important today because gender equality is important. People should be treated fairly and unfortunately that is not the case. Girls need to recognize that there is still a lot we are fighting for.” -Jackeline Gomez

Feminism is Still Needed Today
“I absolutely believe feminism is necessary and important in the 21st century and today. There seems to be this really bad stereotype that comes with the word feminism. Although all stereotypes start from something that might have been true at some point, most women are educated and respectful enough to know not to disrespect men because they have the upperhand. The idea behind feminism is to help grow awareness of the unfairness that women are treated with on a day-to-day basis. In order to succeed in doing that, women need to understand that the world has been one way for a long time. Some people are slower to give in to change, especially when they aren’t sure why it is needed in the first place. If feminism weren’t around today, who knows where we would be? We have come such a long way, but we still have so much further to go. Feminism needs to continue for many years to come — and possibly forever — to ensure that women are never treated unfairly again.” – Gissel Gonzalez

Feminism Isn’t Just a Woman’s Issue
“Today, Feminism is seen as a thing of the past, and I haven’t met many Latinas who identify as a feminist. From my point of view, it might be a culture conflict. In the old days, most of the time feminists were predominantly Anglo, but its grown to more than that. Feminism isn’t a woman’s issue, its everyone’s. We are all in the cause together to make it equal for all. Feminism is important for the upcoming generations because women need to keep standing up for their beliefs and rights as human beings. It is being aware of what your true privileges are today.” -Yajanesty Ruano

It is a Movement for Equal Rights
“In my opinion, feminism is the movement to seek equal rights and opportunities for men and women. It is not only employment rights, but in education, political, social and cultural areas. Fighting to have the same right and opportunities is very important because every human being is the same. What feminists do is fight for women’s rights, the right to vote, the right to have a good job, the right to get paid well, the right to be respected, the right to speak up their mind and all the rights women have. Feminism still important today because even though today women have equality in almost everything, there are some things that we need to keep fighting for. For example, we keep seeing that most of the companies have male CEO. It is important to keep fighting to have more opportunities like men do.” – Eunice Miyuki Sanchez Acosta

Remember the Feminists Who Battled for Future Girls
“In this day and age, females are accomplishing more and more in the public arena. However, is important to remember that the freedom women enjoy today in the USA is due to the efforts of past feminism. Without the heroes who battled for our right to vote and to enter the workplace, females living today would be unable to go after their dreams. The past is never dead. Remember feminists like Susan B. Anthony [a suffragette] battled for future girls just like us.” – Mariel

Being a Feminist is For Everyone
“Being a feminism is the most important title that I could ever give myself. I seek to improve the lives of others via the use of equality. I actively believe that everyone, who is qualified, should get the chance to do what they want without feeling constricted by societal norms. Let’s start out by defining this term. Don’t let the fem- suffix fool you, feminism is for everyone. Even though the movement did at first seek to expand on the rights of women (such as the right to vote), modern feminism has emerged to become an egalitarian movement. It seeks for the equality of all the genders. Feminism is important because there is a huge gender bias system currently in place. Women are systematically paid less. Rape victims are constantly being discredited. Men are taught not to be sensitive.  There are so many awful gender stereotypes that we are assigned at birth. It is relevant and I wish that people would stop fighting it so much. Let’s also talk about the common misconceptions about feminism. If a woman wants to be a mother and get married then she is more than allowed to do whatever her heart pleases. Feminists don’t believe in infringing the rights of other women when it comes to making their own decisions.” – Vianey Reyes

Latinitas Selected as Finalist for Hispanicize Positive Impact Award

Hispanicize and 3M Recognize Five Outstanding Latinos For Extraordinary Community Work

Hispanicize 2015 organizers today announced the winners of the Positive Impact Awards, a national program sponsored by 3M that recognizes outstanding Latinos who contribute selflessly to improving their communities.

This year’s list of winners highlights everyday people who are making extraordinary efforts to champion children and the elderly, propel the growth of STEM-related careers, innovate in public education, empower young women, and lend support and resources to those in need.

“The collaboration, sharing and dedication that is demonstrated by each of these individuals makes them a shining example of what it means to live life in service of others,” said Hispanicize Event founder and creative director Manny Ruiz. “The time and effort that many people dedicated to nominating these individuals is a testament to the amazing work that is being done in our communities across the nation.”

The winners of the 2015 Positive Impact Awards are:

— Alicia Rascon & Laura Donnelly, Founders of Latinitas, – Austin and El Paso, Texas, empower young women using technology as a tool to discuss issues.

— Dr. Daniel King, Superintendent Pharr Independent School District, Pharr, Texas, is an innovator in public education.

— Karina Andrea Quintana, Florida International University Engineering Student, Miami Springs, Fla., advances the growth of science, technology, engineering and math careers by reaching out to other students.

— Nora Sandigo, Foster Parent, Miami, Fla., lends support and provides resources to the community.

— Irene Martinez Jordan, Educator and Advocate – Denver, Colo., champions the needs of children and seniors.

“This year’s awardees are truly making a positive impact,” said Stephen Sanchez, global communications manager for 3M. “We hope their stories inspire others to follow in their footsteps.”

Founded by Laura Donnelly and Alicia Rascon, Latinitas was originally conceived as a class project at the University of Texas Austin over 12 years ago as a way to address the misrepresentation and lack of positive portrayals of Latinas in media and technology. To do this, Laura and Alicia founded the only digital magazine of its kind, made for and by young Latinas.

Through this initiative, Laura and Alicia have developed innovative digital media, technology and cultural literacy education programs in the form of clubs, camps, workshops and conferences that have served tens of thousands since 2002. Laura and Alicia and the programs they have created are teaching girls to try new things, to express themselves and to outline their goals and dreams. To this date Latinitas has served over 20,000 elementary, middle and high school Latinas with after school enrichment programs focused on media, technology and cultural literacy. The dynamic of the program is one where the girls are modeling behavior for their younger counterparts and the formula is working. As a result, 92 percent of Latinitas program alumni reported that they had graduated from high school within four years.

Vote for Positive Impact Person of the Year

Beginning February 5, 2015, the public will have the chance to vote between the winners for Positive Impact Person of the Year. The winning nominee will be announced during the Positive Impact Awards gala, sponsored by 3M, which will take place on March 19, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at the Intercontinental Miami Hotel. To vote, visit: www.hispanicizeevent.com/pia .

The Positive Impact Awards were created in 2013 in honor of the late Louis Pagan, co-founder of Hispanicize and a well-known social media entrepreneur, who passed away suddenly in February 2013. Louis was widely known for his kindness and commitment to giving the community a voice through his vast social media networks. In the same way, the Positive Impact Awards recognize those who contribute selflessly for the betterment of their community.
